Back up your vehicle to the coupler of your hitch. Center the ball directly under the coupler (duh, right?). Lower your jack down so that the coupler connects with the ball and you raise up the jack up until it can't go up any more.  (Don't raise jack all the way up yet if you have a weight distribution hitch that requires you to lift the hitch as well as the back of the tow vehicle.)

The former, obviously, and through personal experience, is much harder to use than the latter. However, the primary benefit of the manual jack is that it COULD be less prone to breaking since it is a simpler device. The electric trailer jack could fail electrically or mechanically. The electric trailer jack will also require installation or some know-how as far as wiring goes.

The Ultra-Fab Protective Cover for Electric A-Frame Jacks - Vinyl - 12" x 14-1/2" # UF38-944020 is the protective cover I recommend for your Husky Brute 4,500 lb Trailer Jack # HT87247. I've attached a photo of the dimensions when laid flat, but I've also attached a video to assist with the fit. It has a durable vinyl construction with integrated draw string closure.
Yes. A 3,000 pound electric jack will work just fine. Based on your trailer weighing 7,500 pounds loaded will equate to your tongue weight between 750-1125 pounds. Although you can choose a 2,500 pound (see link attached) electric jack, I would highly recommend the Stromberg Carlson # JET-3555 (white) or # JET-3755 (black) as they are rated at 3,500 pounds. I think you will really like the price point! I have also included an FAQ for you too.

This fits nicely on our travel trailer power jack. We purchased it to stop the sun fading the black jack. Although we purchased and started using this a couple months ago, after days of heavy rain here recently we thought it would be prudent to check under it today. Yes, it is not waterproof BUT it was only damp under there and all the electronics still worked so we were happy. Let's face it, the manufacturers make the jacks to be weatherproof so a bit of water/damp should not hurt them. I do like another reviewer's idea of putting a plastic bag on first and then putting this cover on top though. A great idea!
